Tina Turner's last message to the world and the hostage she took with her
A penitent Instagram status is the final message that icon Tina Turner left her fans as she left this world.
"My kidneys are victims of the fact that I did not understand that high blood pressure should have been treated medically. I put myself at great risk by refusing to face the reality that I needed daily, lifelong drug therapy. For a long time I believed that my body was an untouchable and unbreakable fortress."
She further added that she knew that high blood pressure damages the kidneys.
Tina Turner passed away yesterday at her home in Switzerland.
The cause of death has not yet been determined, but her kidneys had long been out of action.
In a chilling interview with The Guardian in April Turner revealed how he wanted to be remembered and added that he was not afraid of death.
'How would you like to be remembered?' asked the reporter.
"As the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. As a woman who showed other women that it's ok to strive for success on their own terms."
